“What-if Moments” and “Bite-Sized Goals” – Kevin Eastman’s Keys to Success

Written by Don Yaeger on . Posted in Chasing Greatness Blog

Kevin Eastman

The NBA regular season begins this week, and we are in for an incredible season of exciting play from spectacular teams.

But behind every on-court team…is a talented team of staff, and there are few individuals in the league as progressive as Kevin Eastman, former assistant coach and current Vice-President for Basketball Operations of the Los Angeles Clippers. Over dinner recently, Eastman taught me several valuable lessons on leadership, strategy, and planning for the worst in order to achieve the best and I am excited to share them with you.
